IT’S OK – commitment in one perspective 

I have serious commitment issues. 

I made a commitment to post “a poem a day” on Tumblr, using a “word of the day” as a prompt. 

My “word of the day” attempt failed on paper, but I swear I learn a new word every day. I might not be doing “a poem a day” on Tumblr, but my journals are proof that my head is filled with words, some quite repetitive for my liking but words all the same.  

I’m saying I want to learn more words, yet don’t mind knowing the ones I already do.

I Tried Levitation

It was more simple than I ever imagined! Although I need to find a better angle so it seems like I am “flying” or “falling” more than looking like I photoshopped a sticker of myself on a background.
I got photoshop about two weeks ago, and I haven’t touched it since these two pictures… might be because the holidays, or something deeper than that.
I’m not sure why, but every time I start gaining interest in anything that I am remotely good at I quit. 
I don’t say “I quit” 
but my actions speak louder. 

I simply stop doing it, 

I think about it a lot, 

and I tell myself I can be just as good as anyone else- 

I still sit on the couch and daydream of ways to get better (instead of doing something about it, like practicing.)
Either way, I’m really happy with my first pictures edited in photoshop! 

An Old Passion

has sparked its way into my soul again. Sadly my camera body and lens are dirty. I’m still doing some research on how to clean it myself since professional cleanings usually cost a lot. 

I want to create a new business with my photography, like I did before. I was a small town photographer, known by quite a few actually! I’m getting photoshop next Friday and my first challenge will be levitation photography. 

I also want to create a watermark to continuously put the same one on my pictures. I will probably just follow a couple of tutorials and I’ll be a pro! I hope so anyways. 

Gotta love chasing your dreams, here’s a couple of shots of my old stuff.

P.S. My novel is coming along pretty good too 😻 I kept writing even though NANOWRIMO is over. I’ll be the next J.K.Rowling I tell ya, just wait and see!

SLEEPLESS NIGHTS & POETRY

the past two nights, all weekend actually, I didn’t sleep at night. It’s been awhile since I’ve had long sleepless nights. Especially two in a row. Although I did get quite a lot of writing done, I actually got to a word count of 20,000! I’m participating my second year in NANOWRIMO, I need to reach 50,000 words in a couple of days. I’m not giving up- and to all those out there in the same predicament as me DONT GIVE UP KEEP WRITING KEEP GOING KEEP DREAMING YOU GOT THIS-

HONEST ARTIST

I’ve learnt with my past that honesty is important. I can see how ten years can go by so very very quickly. This year, 2016, has been the first year I have not lied (I’m sure white lies don’t count). I’ve been honest with myself, and the people around me, it feels good. I feel genuine, like a real person. 

I’ve also done some immense healing. Still healing now, but I’m starting to see healing is an every day mission. That’s ok though, I have people around me that support and love me for who I am-who forgave me for who I was in the past. 

Now I’m bringing my honesty into my art, I feel this is my way to complete freedom.

THE ART OF STORYTELLING by Marsh Cassady

Creative ideas for preparation and performance, the book I’m currently reading. 

So far it’s pretty good. It’s good to go back to the basics. 

Reading, writing and telling stories, fiction or not, is something most of us do everyday. Sometimes-without even thinking about it.  

Maybe you should sit down and go back to your basics, whatever they might be. Feels good to sit down and refresh something you already know. Also, I suggest reading a book, your brain will thank you.
